Sorry, but I can't buy into the tone of this post.
I'm no expert on Chicago style politics, but from what I do know it's simple.
Obama would not merely bring down one small potatoes ass such as Paterson.
If Obama were playing Chicago style politics he'd have his HCR (health care reform) and most everything else he wanted. He might later be in deep shit about leaving bodies buried in shallow graves, but not for exposing too common rape of the common electorate.
PIX News has learned that federal prosecutors are investigating Governor David Paterson’s awarding of a lucrative contract to a politically connected group to run a gaming center at Aqueduct Raceway.
The embattled Governor who appears to have dodged the bullet of rumors and innuendo that had been circulating over a purported “bombshell” story being prepared by the New York Times, is now part of a probe by the Eastern District U.S. Attorney’s office in Brooklyn.
